State Bar of Texas seeks public input on transparency efforts

AUSTIN — The State Bar of Texas is seeking public input on its communications and transparency efforts. Members of the public are invited to take a short survey, available at through August 6, where they can evaluate the State Bar’s public communications and provide feedback on areas for improvement.

The State Bar Board of Directors voted unanimously on June 20 to hire the Texas-based independent advisory firm Weaver to complete an objective examination of the State Bar’s transparency efforts and to make recommendations for improvement. As part of its review, Weaver is conducting separate surveys of State Bar members and the general public.

“The State Bar of Texas, as an administrative agency of the Supreme Court, is committed to being a leader in open government,” State Bar President Joe K. Longley said. “Your input is essential to this effort and will be used by Weaver in making its recommendations to the board.”

The public survey is 11 questions long and takes approximately 10 minutes to complete. While aggregated survey results will be shared with the State Bar of Texas, individual responses will remain anonymous.

Texas lawyers can take the State Bar of Texas member survey by logging on to My Bar Page at and clicking on the black button in the lower-right corner of the dashboard labeled “Transparency Survey.”

If you have any technical difficulties accessing or completing the survey, please contact Matt Paske from Weaver at (972) 448-9257 or
